Undergraduate Registration

Advising and registration for the Spring 2015 semester for undergraduates in degree programs will take place October 20th - December 12th, 2014.

These are the steps for registration for the Spring 2015 semester:

Go to your advising meeting prepared with some idea of the courses you should be taking and any questions you may have.

Meet with your Faculty Advisor between October 20th and October 29th. Make an appointment with your advisor in advance of this meeting. After your meeting, your advisor will clear you for registration via the web. If you plan to take any classes that require the instructor’s permission to register, you should secure permission before trying to register for these classes.

Register for classes from any computer with web access using KnightVision, a web-based service available through the mySMC portal. You will not be able to register for classes until after you have met with your advisor and your advisor has cleared you for registration via the web.

Registration hours: 7:00 am to 3:00 pm

Each class has been divided into two groups on a random basis, and each group is given one day for priority registration. You will be notified about the day you have been assigned for registration.  After both groups in a class have had their registration days, an additional day of registration will be open to all members of the class.

Spaces in classes will be held back and released as registration opens for each group, so there should be no disadvantage to students assigned to the group registering on the second day of registration for their class.  

Remember, the class you belong to is based on the number of credits you have completed, not the year or term you entered Saint Michael's College. You will not be able to register at times other than the times assigned to your class.

Once you have been cleared by your advisor you should be able to register when the time comes for your group.

After registering for classes you can return to KnightVision to make changes to your class selections on the days you were assigned for registration, or any time between November 13th and December 12th.

Some Common Problems Students Encounter When Registering

You will get a message alerting you to the nature of the problem…

You are not eligible to register at this time, usually because…

There is some problem with your enrolling in a class you have chosen

You are trying to register for too many credits

After completing the registration process, you should confirm your registration in the classes you have selected by clicking on "My Class Schedule" from the KnightVision - Academic Profile menu. You will not receive a printed schedule confirmation from the registrar's office.

Petition For Entry Into Classes With Limited Enrollment Capacity

Many class sections have an enrollment limit or "cap" that helps to ensure that the class size is appropriate for the goals of the course. Occasionally it happens that a student who needs a class or wants to take a class for a special reason may not be able to register for it because the class has reached its enrollment cap.

A few spaces in some classes have been reserved for students to request entry by submitting a written petition form. The petition is submitted to the instructor of the class on a form that is available at the Registrar's Office. On this form the student can communicate the reason for wanting to enroll in the class.  

If the instructor of the class decides to admit the student to the class, the signed petition form is sent to the registrar’s office and the student is registered for the class. Petitions may be submitted at any time during the registration process.

There is helpful information on registering for classes by KnightVision here.
